Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

McCorkell Gets Lucky to Eliminate Sylvia

[user153638] • Level 5: 100-200, 25 ante
Jesse Sylvia

Jesse Sylvia was no longer sitting in his seat, and a quick check with the table confirmed that he had been eliminated.

Apparently it happened when Sylvia opened for 500 and David "ODB" Baker called. Craig McCorkell then three-bet to 1,750 from the small blind, Sylvia moved all in for right around 10,000, and Baker got out of the way. McCorkell opted to make the call and was in a bad spot.

McCorkell: {k-}{q-}
Sylvia: {a-}{q-}

The {5-}{2-}{4-} flop kept Sylvia firmly in the lead, but then McCorkell hit his three-outer when a {K-} appeared on the turn. The {9-} blanked on the river and Sylvia's tournament came to an end here in Level 5.
